A 5.2 m wire with a mass of 86 g is attached to the mast of a sailboat. If the wire is given a "thunk" at one end, it takes 0.085 s for the resulting wave to reach the other end.

Part A
What is the tension in the wire?

Would the tension found in part A be larger or smaller if the mass of the wire is greater than 86 g?
